US Bank Stadium, the new home of the Minnesota Vikings, will host some of the most advanced and phone-centric technology ever deployed in a sports venue. Bluetooth beacons throughout the building will communicate with the new Vikings app to provide precise indoor location info. The system will automatically sense when guests are in a long line at a gate or bathroom, and push a notification letting them know the nearest gate or bathroom with a shorter line. Guests can also use the Vikings app to access instant replays and NFL Red Zone video, order food, and navigate using a detailed stadium map. The app is the first in NFL to integrate both venue and team services (schedule, stats, roster, etc.) in a single app. The app also links with a TicketMaster account and the Vikings loyalty program. VenueNext is developing the new app, which is expected to launch in time for the 2016 NFL Draft. US Bank Stadium will also be the first stadium in the U.S. with Wi-Fi access points (1,300 of them, covering all sections) integrated into handrails, providing better coverage than typical under-seat access points. The venue also includes a distributed antenna system (DAS) for cellular service, supporting all major wireless carriers. The stadium will open in July, and host Super Bowl LII in 2018.

Does anyone know that the NFL is tax exempt? Here you have a billionaire NFL owner getting the taxpayers to pay for an unneeded stadium using the public's money. Then the same public that paid for that stadium get charged a rip off price for tickets to see a tax exempt NFL game. Ya just gotta love it.
Even better does anyone else know the NFL is a Non Profit company
